The Art Of Noel Sickles!
Here's a special prize I got hold of yesterday for a special price. Scorchy Smith and The Art of Noel Sickles was on my long list of books I might like to have some day but likely would never find for a nice enough price. But I found a damaged copy going for about $7 bucks and since the book is normally $50 I knew if I didn't snap it up I'd regret it. The damage is pretty severe to the binding, but the interiors are untouched and from the outside the book looks fine.
What I've got is three years of Scorchy Smith continuity along with a massive amount of information on the career of Noel Sickles. This is a great looking collection. When I'll get around to reading these is anyone's guess, but the strips look fantastic as does much of Sickles other artwork well featured in this giant book.
